    To be honest I never even considered any other e-reader before I got my Kindle, but I love it nonetheless.

    i have the £89 kindle and can't imagine travelling without it! so many free or very cheap books, so many pretty covers for it, and so much lighter than the types of books i was used to carrying in my bag as well!

    also, you don't just have to put books on it. if you have PDF files or can convert files to PDFs, you can put those on it too. i've used it to carry around revision notes and knitting patterns with me

    Get the £89 kindle you won't regret it but also get the little light as there is no backlight. And as for books, there free if you know where to look.

    I've got a whole bunch of classics that I'm going to go through, after I've finished reading a song of ice and fire series. Look out for Amazon's daily deals and offers on ebooks, they usually send you an email notifying you of these =)

    I'm a Kindle owner and love it, but if you want something marginally cheaper you could consider WHSmiths' Kobo, which has an identical screen (literally identical, same technology from the same company, same size). If you're mostly going to download legal free books from places like Project Gutenberg then it might be worth saving the £20.

    Kindle! Mine's called Karl and I love it <3

    And as for good kindle books, um well 'The God of Small Things' by Arhundhati Roy is one of the most amazing books ever and I imagine that you can get it for kindle!
